Where Can You Install Linoleum?

One of the biggest benefits of linoleum is how versatile it is in terms of installation options. Capable of being installed in bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, over concrete and radiant heating, linoleum flooring is home and office friendly, as well as cost effective.

What To Do After Installation

Allow your flooring to set for at least one week before you do any wet washing or scrubbing. You’ll want to be gentle with your floors in general at this point, and should only use microfibre cloths or mops to handle any unexpected spills or moisture to avoid damaging the setting process.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Despite being durable, you should never use harsh cleaning agents on your linoleum floors. Doing so can strip away the protective seal of your tile and leave your floors vulnerable to damage.

Clean regularly

Once your floors have settled into place, adopting a regular cleaning schedule is the best way to keep them looking fresh. Fortunately, linoleum is easy to maintain. Sweep, vacuum (using a low, gentle setting), and mop once a week or as needed to prevent dirt from building up.
